West Indies are on a roll in their most favorable format of the game. They defeated the mighty Aussies in the 2nd match to go 2-Nil up in the 5 match T20I series. They are experimenting things in lead up to WT20 and yet they don’t sacrifice on the results. They lost the series against South Africa by a small margin but they look good to smash Australians 5-0 in this series.
Shimron Hetmyer is a massive potential with the bat and he is slowly becoming a dynamic player in the shortest format of the game. He is not only a spin basher like some of his team mates but also can hit the pacers who are capable of bowling in high 140s.
West Indies were asked to bat by Aaron Finch and the wicket was expected to be low and slow like the previous game but it played really well and batters were able to play through the line without much difficulty.
Shimron Hetmyer’s full value can be locked in a T20 game if he is in the crease by 6th over mark. He is a brilliant player of spin bowling and can make full use of the middle overs phase where spinners will be primarily in operation.
He paced his innings so well in this match and was playing at a healthy strike rate throughout his innings. Mitchell Starc was held back for death overs by Aaron Finch believing that the lanky left arm seamer will do the job but he was a disappointment for one more time
Shimron Hetmyer played a scoop over wicket-keeper’s head to dispatch a slot delivery by Mitchell Starc for a mighty six behind the wicket. Shimron Hetmyer was run out in the end after having scored 61 off just 36 balls.
Australia was asked to chase 197 runs in their 20 overs but they were never in the game as West Indies kept pulling things back with regular wickets. Australia were bowled out for a mere 140 runs in 19.2 overs to give West Indies their 2nd victory in as many games.
